EDINA, Minn., July 1, 2022 (Newswire.com) - O'Brien-Staley Partners (OSP) announced today the acquisition of substantially all the assets of the American Church Mortgage Company (ACMC) on behalf of OSP Value Fund III, LP. The asset sale was approved by ACMC's shareholders during a special meeting held on June 27, 2022.
American Church Mortgage Company, ticker: ACMC, is a publicly-traded real estate investment trust (REIT). ACMC has been funding loans since 1995. With its affiliate, American Investors Group, Inc., the principals of ACMC have been funding church loans across the United States since 1987. As a result of this transaction, ACMC will cease being publicly traded and shareholders will receive a pro-rata share of the portfolio liquidation proceeds pursuant to the approved "Plan of Liquidation and Dissolution" reviewed at the special meeting of shareholders.
The sale is set to close on June 30, 2022. Going forward, portfolio assets will be serviced by AmeriNat, who has significant experience with church loans. Phil Myers, President of ACMC, stated, "OSP is a unique suitor for us as we sought to wind down our life's work. Not only was OSP's valuation fair, but we are very comfortable that our borrowers will continue to be treated well by OSP and AmeriNat".
"The founders of ACMC have done an excellent job as stewards for church financing and generating strong returns for ACMC shareholders. This transaction ensures continued support for the underlying assets and allows for an orderly wind down of a 35-year-old business," said Jerry O'Brien, Chief Executive Officer, and Chief Investment Officer of OSP.
